Cracked planchet or post mint error?

Is that shadow on the reverse due to the difference in height or is it actually undercut, as in you can slip a piece of paper or something under it? Don't actually do it, just wondering why that shadow is so significant.

Thanks for the new pics; while the coin is well circulated that reverse sure doesn't look right. The devices to the left of the line are markedly indistinct and very different than to the right so to me it looks like something interfered with the strike of the coin. I'm nowhere near expert enough to say what - it does look like lamination - but I don't think it's PMD.

After seeing the new and better pictures, (Wish they had been posted earlier)  I'm changing my original assessment.  It looks like a nice Delamination covering half the coin.
